Happy Cat People: Los Angeles Feline Film Festival

Me and Tamar of I Have Cat

Cynthia:  So Marcy, it’s been almost a week since the Los Angeles Feline Film Festival came to town.

Marcy:  So you’ve finally calmed down and are going to bore us with a summary?

Cynthia:  So… yes.

Marcy:  Hang on while I get some catnip to dull the pain.

Cynthia waits while Marcy eats her catnip.

Marcy:  Okay. So what are your thoughtful thoughts?

Cynthia:  Just this. I have never in my life been in a place…With so many people… Who were all so happy… At the same time. And all because… Of cats. I can’t get over it.

Marcy:  Whatever. So did you meet Lil Bub and her dude, Mike?

Cynthia:  I did.

Interviewing Lil Bub and her dude, Mike

Marcy:  Gasp! Did you ask him if I could be his kitty?

Cynthia:  Funny you should ask. Everyone is in love with Mike. I can’t tell you how many of our readers wanted to know if Mike was single. Well, he told me he’s not. He’s engaged! He said he met his fiancee the same day that Lil Bub met Grumpy Cat! (Super happy for you, Mike!)

Marcy:  I’m not surprised. Mike is cute, sweet, has bad ass tattoos and a recording studio, adores his cats, and raises money for cat rescue. He’s the kind of guy girls go gaga over.

Cynthia:  All of the money Mike gets for his Meet-n-Greets goes to cat rescue. You should have seen the line to get in to see Lil Bub. It was hours long. I’ve never seen anything like it. And the merchandise they were selling was going quick quick quick.

Marcy (greedily):  We need to start working on our own cat tshirts.

Cynthia:  Marcy, everyone was so smiley and so giddy. And so eager to talk about their love of cats or what cute cat attire they had on, or what cute cats they had in their arms.

 

Cute Guy with Cute Kittens


Cynthia:  There were cat art vendors, cat cafe startups, cat face painters, cool cat supply vendors, and most importantly; loads of cat rescue groups adopting out cats and giving out information on TNR (trap/neuter/return) and other resources.

I got a drawing of you, Marcy, from Steve of I Want To Draw A Cat For You. He’s another one who was busy all day long.

 

Marcy:  Awesome. We need to do a separate post about that later.

Catification: Designing a Happy and Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!)

Cynthia:  I got to meet the stars of the cat world and some of my own favorite and inspirational bloggers and cat website owners. Every single person I met was happy to be spending their Sunday amongst cat people. And, many people I talked to agreed that this cat fanaticism isn’t a passing fad. It’s here to stay…

Cynthia trails off, lost in thought.

Marcy:  So? Is that it?

Cynthia (confused):  Well. Yes. Maybe I’m not thinking clearly because I am still so bowled over by the energetic happy creative vibe that the festival generated. I mean… people love cats so much that it really does alter their chemistry. You can feel it. There’s something to that. Sorry, I know I’m not making any sense.

Marcy (wide-eyed):  It makes perfect sense.

Marcy excitedly gets up to leave the room.

Cynthia:  Where are you going?

Marcy:  I have to call the Mothership and tell them that cats are thisclose to total world domination. I think sending Lil Bub to help hypnotize you humans helped greatly. And, possibly give the CATBEL PRIZE to the guy who invented the internet which enabled you humans to stare at cat videos for hours on end.

Marcy rushes off to call the spaceship. Or something.

Cynthia exuberantly dances around the living room in her cat ears. Marcy is asleep in her sunspot.

Cynthia:  Marcy! Marcy! Marcy!

Marcy:  What? I’m busy. I’m absorbing the D.

Cynthia:  Organikat + Walker’s  LA Feline Film Festival is almost here! Woo Hoo!

I’m soooooo excited!

On September 21st at Exposition Park in Los Angeles I will join 10,000 other feline fanatics to watch cat videos, meet celebrity cats, check out cat fashion, and support cat rescues in Los Angeles. 

What could be better than that? Nothing I say! It has the makings of the most pawsitively pawsome day … ever!

 

 

Marcy races off to hide under the couch.

Cynthia:  What’s wrong?

Marcy (terrified) There are 10,000 people like you? Ten thousand catifyibly insane cat fanatics? All wearing fake cat ears and gushing about gatos? All ten thousand of you … in the same place?




Cynthia:  YES! Isn’t that AWESOME?

Cynthia obliviously resumes dancing in her cat ears.

Marcy:  No. It’s terrifying. What if you all spontaneously combust from feline fever?

Cynthia (excitedly):  I’m going to live Tweet and Instagram all the cat fashion while I’m there. I can’t wait!
